Ingredients for Maple Whipped Cream

Maple whipped cream only has 3 ingredients so it’s super simple and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand, especially if I’ve been baking lately!

Heavy Cream – Heavy cream is rich and creates amazing fluffy, light delicious whipped cream.

Maple Syrup – Do NOT use artificial maple syrup. Get the real stuff here! You’ll be surprised how much better everything tastes with real maple syrup! This provides sweetness in our whipped cream without using sugar!

Vanilla Extract – Please use real vanilla extract and not imitation. The taste is far superior. Vanilla adds not only flavor but an extra bit of sweetness.

Making Sugar Free Whipped Cream

Making homemade whipped cream is actually super simple!

For best results, use a metal mixing bowl and chill in the fridge or freezer for a bit before you start. This helps keep the cream cold and makes it fluffier!

I prefer to use a standing mixer to make my whipped cream but you can certainly beat the cream by hand or use a hand mixer. You can also use a whipped cream dispenser as well!

Pour the heavy cream into the chilled mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until doubled in size. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and continue beating on medium-high speed until soft peaks form.

Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use. It is best to use this within a few hours of making it as it will lose its fluffiness quickly.

I love making homemade maple whipped cream to top my sugar-free apple crisp, Pumpkin Spice Irish Coffee, Rustic Pear Galette, or sugar-free creamy pumpkin mousse!

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 Tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Beat the heavy whipping cream in a large bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a standing mixer until it doubles in size.
  • Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and continue beating until soft peaks form and it is light and fluffy.
  • Use immediately or cover and store in the fridge until ready to use.


Chilling your mixing bowl or the bowl of your standing mixer will help in keeping the cream cool while you are mixing it!
To make vegan maple whipped cream, use coconut milk instead of heavy cream. The night before or at least several hours before you plan to use the maple whipped cream, place a can of coconut milk in the fridge to chill.
Remove the can from the fridge carefully so as not to shake or turn it. Carefully, remove the lid and scoop out the solidified "cream" at the top of the can and transfer it to a mixing bowl. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix light and airy. You may need to allow the cream to warm up slightly if it is lumpy.
